*.MAP and *.LOC files and download issues in Microcontrollers

    I am developing a product prototype using a TERN development board
    based on a 586 processor and using Paradigm C compiler. When I compile
    and build my program it generates a few files specifically *.HEX ,
    *.ROM , *.MAP , *.LOC. I have information regarding hex and rom files
    but I could not find satisfactory info on the other two and would be
    glad if any of you could help me understand me the significance of
    these files and how to read/interpret them.

    Also if any of few could help me about

    1. Relocating (downloading) HEX files at any desired location in the
    EEROM of the controller.
    2. How does the downloading program writes code (.hex file) to
    3. Where is the program for downloading the code from PC stored
    internally in the controller?
    4. Where is the starting up software (bootloader perhaps) of the
    controller stored internally in the controller?

    Please reply ASAP
